Actor Kellan Lutz has donated three pair of shoes to Shoe Revolt, which will be auctioned off on the online boutique’s website. All proceeds raised from the shoes will fund anti-commercial sex trafficking initiatives in the United States.
Shoe Revolt is based in Beaverton, Oregon. We are working to eradicate human trafficking through purchasing power. Shoe Revolt takes new or gently used shoe donations and they are sold on our website. One hundred percent of profits go toward creating strategies to build new and support existing programs that house, heal, educate, and decriminalize survivors.
Shoe Revolt is incredibly grateful for Lutz’s donation. The funds generated from the sale will provide much-needed support for programs in the United States that assist survivors of the commercial sex trade. Most victims are women and children, and once rescued, they have nowhere to turn to gain the necessary resources for survival. Donations such as Lutz’s allow Shoe Revolt to continue supporting programs for survivors to ensure that they remain safe.

‘Water for Elephants’ (April 22)
Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon fall for each other under the big top in their new period drama based on the best-selling novel by Sara Gruen. ‘Water for Elephants’ follows an elderly man (Hal Holbrook) reminiscing about his days working as an animal caretaker at a circus. A young veterinary school student (Robert) witnessing the beauty and brutality of life under the big top, he falls for Marlena (Reese), the captivating star performer, and suffers the wrath of her charismatic but dangerous husband, August (Christoph Waltz).
Please credit me for the videos as I recorded, and uploaded them! Thank you
Robert Pattison had a new look when he turned up at the Golden Globes on Sunday – red-tinted hair.
“Your hair is a different color,” Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson noted when Robert hit Access’ Golden Globes red carpet platform.
“I know,” Robert laughed. “I’ve been trying to figure it out.”
Robert hinted that his hair color change had to do with his various projects – the next “Twilight Saga” installment – “Breaking Dawn: Part I” – and the upcoming “Water for Elephants.”
“It’s a different color in ‘Twilight’ than it is in ‘Water For Elephants’ so I had to do a kind of rush dye job on it,” he continued.
“Did you do it yourself?” Shaun asked
“Just like some mousse… isn’t it amazing?” he laughed.
“Breaking Dawn” won’t be out until November 18, but a photo surfaced online on Sunday, showing Robert and his co-star, Kristen Stewart, embracing in bed as Edward and Bella.
“Ooh,” Robert said when Shaun whipped out the picture. (Click HERE to see it)
“I just saw this today for the first time,” Robert continued. “Very pretty… It’s funny that’s the first picture they released… Kind of giving it away a little bit.”
While fans wait for the first installment of “Breaking Dawn,” Robert will keep his fans satisfied with “Water for Elephants,” which sees him playing a young man who joins a traveling circus as a vet after his parents pass away.
“I’m really excited about it coming out,” Robert raved. “I’ve been doing some additional stuff today and yesterday, and I think… I have a feeling it’s going to be really good.”
Robert added that his new film, due out on April 22, and also starring Reese Witherspoon, “The Cape’s” James Frain and Hal Holbrook, has a classic sort of feel.
“It’s like a big old-fashioned movie,” he said. “It feels like kind of 40s Hollywood. So, I hope that comes across. It’s got a sort of nostalgic factor that I miss anyway.
Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz have closed deals to reup their roles in the next Twilight movie, “Breaking Dawn.”
Greene and Lutz signed contracts last nights, acccording to sources close to the deal.
Movie studio Summit Entertainment, which has made billions off the franchise, had been in negotiations with the two supporting characters since last week, but the two actors reportedly wanted pay increases for the next movie since the studio did not allow them to renegotiate on the second and third films.
Summit caved in after the two actors held out for more cash. “The studio realized how valuable Ashley and Kellan are to the franchise and did what they needed to do to keep them,” said a source close to the situation.
Reports said the kids have been trying to score paydays of $1.5 million. Sources said they two will receive close to that amount to continue on in their roles. “It was a good deal,” said the source.
The money is still much lower than what Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are supposedly pulling in.
“Breaking Dawn” will be the fourth and fifth movies of the Twilight franchises.
Here’s an excerpt of an interview with Dee Marie, author of Sons of Avalon: Merlin’s Prophecy:
If this were to be made into a movie, who would you like to play the major roles?
I think every author ponders which Hollywood stars would best bring their characters to life. I did not have any specific actors in mind when I wrote the book. However, since its publication, I have been on a constant “talent search.” Now, when I watch a movie or television show, I scrutinize the cast for “possible” players in a movie version of Sons of Avalon: Merlin’sProphecy.
This is my current casting call, which is always subject to change, due to the fluctuation of new talented streaming into Hollywood, or simply my fickle whims.
Lot: Robert Pattinson (Twilight) …I took a giant leap-of-faith with my imaginary casting of Robert Pattinson, as Sir Lot. I had only seen him briefly (playing a small part in two of the Harry Potter films). However, with the prospects of his staring role in the movie Twilight (based on the popular novel with the same name, and my current obsession with the vampire series), I have a gut feeling that no one but Robert could portray misunderstood anti-hero Lot.
Meleagant: Tom Sturridge (Vanity Fair) …At first I considered him for the role of Nentres. Yet, For purely selfish reasons (after all this is my fantasy casting call), I would be interested in watching him take on the challenging role of young man on a spiral decent into insanity.
